Hey everyone. I just started my EMT-B class last Monday. We are using the Emergency care and transport of the sick and injured by Andrew N. Pollak. Anyone have any good study tips especially with this book? Anyone else use this book or is using this book for the course?

No experience with this book specifically...  Don't miss class, pay attention, and keep an open mind.

 

Best of luck to you!!

Thank you for the advice. Yeah we really can't miss class because its 2 times a week at 5 hours each so its a lot of credit hours to miss in just one class. Its kind of hard for me to pay attention right now because I have taken all of the medical assisting classes at my college so all the the basics (Medical ethics, HIPPA, OSHA, hand washing ect) I already know but I am trying to review the information as the rest of the class is learning it. I want to be a paramedic and 99% of my class is firefighters/ people who want to be firefighters, there is one 50 year old woman just looking to find a job, a 18 year old wanting to do the same and me the only person in the class who wants to be strickly medical.

Listen to your instructor stay focused and read the chapter and read it again, Do not be afraid to ask questions if there is something you do not understand, the instructor cant eat you. Get a good study buddy, studying with a friend from class often gives you a new out look on things. 

 

Best of luck to you on your education and keep on going with your education the sky is the limit,

Read the book, take notes on the book, ask questions, do research online about the stuff you learn to reinforce in your mind.
